Abstract or Summary
  • The intent of this paper is to bring more attention to the mastery involved with film composition as an art form. The research focuses specifically on the life, style, influences, and works of John Williams as a conductor, film composer, and composer. It addresses his biography, filmography, and working relationships, as well as critical analysis on several film scores. Particular emphasis is placed on scene-by-scene music analysis of the films Jaws, Hook, and Memoirs of a Geisha, as they are representative of three chronological segments of Williams’ film composition career. An overall theme focuses on how his music is so iconic, recognizable, and emotionally relatable by audiences, that it has become a part of our everyday culture.
